What happens after COVID Swab?

The results of your RAT test are available within 15 minutes. PCR swab results are usually available 24-48 hours after the swab is taken. If the result is positive, you will be contacted by our clinical team and asked to complete an online questionnaire. This will then be assessed and you will be assigned to self-manage your symptoms or have regular checks via phone from our clinical team. If the result is negative, you will be contacted by the staff at the location where your swab was taken.


Frequently Asked Questions
What are the signs and symptoms of COVID-19?

Symptoms of COVID-19 are similar to a range of other illnesses such as cold and flu and having these symptoms does not necessarily mean that you have COVID-19. Symptoms include:

  • Sore throat
  • Sneezing and runny nose
  • Temporary loss of smell
  • Fever
  • Coughing
  • Difficulty breathing
How is COVID-19 spread?

The scientific evidence confirms that COVID-19 is spread by droplets. This means that when an infected person coughs, sneezes or talks, they may generate droplets containing the virus. These droplets are too large to stay in the air for long, so they quickly settle on surrounding surfaces.

How is COVID-19 treated?

It is important to note that the coronavirus, like all viruses, is not treated with an antibiotic. There is no specific drug that is effective for the novel coronavirus at this time, but there are studies happening throughout the world to find effective treatments.

I am feeling stressed, who can I talk to?

If over the following days and weeks you feel you are not coping, it’s important to seek help and professional support.

For support with grief, anxiety, distress or mental wellbeing, you can also call or text the ‘Need to talk?’ service on 1737. This service is free, available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and gives you the chance to talk it through with a trained counsellor. Alternatively you can talk to our Clinician via the Virtual Doctor
